Boomkat Product Review:
O Monolith, the second album from Squid, via Warp.
"Teeming with melodic epiphanies and layered sounds, Squid’s second album, ‘O Monolith’, is a musical evocation of environment, domesticity and self-made folklore. Like its predecessor, 2021’s critically acclaimed, UK Number 4 album, ‘Bright Green Field’, it is dense and tricksy - but also more warm and characterful, with a meandering, questioning nature.
Expansive, evocative and hugely varied, ‘O Monolith’ retains Squid’s restless, enigmatic spirit, but it still holds surprises for those familiar with Bright Green Field. It’s a reflection of the outsized progression of a band always looking to the future. Like its namesake, ‘O Monolith’ is vast and strange; alive with endless possible interpretations of its inner mysteries."
